Home improvement retailer Home Depot is recalling about 3,700 ceramic mugs due to a potential fire hazard.

The company said Tuesday that a silver-colored part of the mug below the rim, which looks like a bucket handle, can spark when used in a microwave oven. No injuries have been reported.

The mug is orange, about 4.5 inches tall and has a large vertical cup handle on the side. The mug has the words "The Home Depot," ''Homer's All-purpose Bucket" and a cartoon character with a utility bucket on the front.

The mugs were sold at Home Depot stores in October for about $5.

Consumers should stop using the mug and return it to a Home Depot store for a full refund.
